Cadbury Egg Easter Cupcakes!

Cadbury Egg Easter Cupcakes - a full-size Cadbury Egg BAKED INSIDE!

If one thing is for sure, it’s cupcakes and Cadbury Eggs are delish. Two delish things? That’s dynamite! These cupcakes are the perfect treat for the sweet tooths in your life this Easter! They received rave reviews by my husband and all his coworkers too. It’s easy to see why! Bake a full-size Cadbury Egg inside homemade chocolate cupcakes topped with vanilla buttercream? Yes, mam! Serve them up at your Easter brunch (or Easter “Eggstravangza” or Easter Egg Hunt, you get the idea). I made a little chalkboard sign to label mine (p.s. I played with a new chalkboard marker from Michaels - and it’s so much easier to write with than chalk). Anyway… let’s focus on the sweets at hand..

How to Make Cadbury Egg Cupcakes! The full recipe is below (you can save it to a Recipe Box on Ziplist or print it too) but as you can see above, it’s simple. Just fill your cupcake liners about 1/4 full, then place a Cadbury Egg (thicker side down) into the batter. Then I topped the eggs with another 1-2 teaspoons of batter to top it off (not pictured). These babies are ready for the oven. After they’re done with frosting, this is what you’ll see!

It’s decadent, it’s ooey gooey, it’s creamy, it’s the perfect Easter cupcake!

    LOVE the color! can i assume this can be done with any flavored egg? i was thinking peanut butter… i do love the look and thought of the “egg” oozing out. :)

  14. 18

  15. 20

    did you use regular cupcake liners or jumbo? or didi you use mini candy eggs?

  18. 26

    mmm…delicious idea Courtney! x

  19. 27

    You mention jello mix at the top but not in the directions. Is this added into the cake mix at the beginning?

    made these today with my girls. We coloured them green for St.Patrick’s Day, I think if I found another icing recipe that wasn’t so sweet they would be a huge hit here! Sweetness was a bit overwhelming. They want to try them again at Easter but I think we will use the pudding / cool whip as a topping. They were fun to make and girls loved finding their egg in the middle of their cupcake :)
